This is a very classy restaurant, ( you best make reservations). The food is very good and the service is premium. Best part is to arrive early and sit in bar to see and hear live preformances.

Disappointing sums up our dinner visit to an old favorite place. Service was glacial, food not tasty, prices higher and the new decor is austere. Few traces remain of the old Hollywood glamor. Now it’s more a place of fond memories. The steak au poivre...More

Melvyn has passed and, unfortunately, so has the quality of the food at his restaurant. His legacy does not live on. Please go elsewhere if you would like a nice meal.More

Took an hour and a half to get served dinner! The dinners were not worth $89.99 each on Thanksgiving and the food was really just so-so. Very disappointing! Recommend skipping this restaurant altogether!
